Classic Motor Home Caravan -2018

Alright....well here goes...plenty of time to plan for this one, I mean, this is why we build and re-build these things, right ??? So this is this plan, our "Muster"point will be Penn Wood, PA. Saturday August 18, 2018. Day of rest and get acquainted or re-acquainted Sunday August 19, Leave Monday August 20, destination, Jackson Center, Ohio. We will camp at the factory (Terra-Port) and then take the tour of the factory on Tuesday...a must do for those who have not. Leave Wednesday destination.....Kentucky, (Daniel Boone National Forest), great campground, only electric hook-ups from memory and the campground is empty cause school starts mid-August. Onward to Friday, still to be determined somewhere in VA. or West VA. and finally Saturday back to Penn Wood. Any one that might be interested let me know, Regards, Bob

By Daniel Boone National Forest do you mean 'Brad's place', not sure how many rigs he could fit on his top paddock!

I think we would be "IN" at least for a portion of it. Maybe do Jackson Center and Kentucky.

Daniel Boone forest is awfully large. I'm 20 or 30 miles from Fort Boonesborough State Park.

I would love to give it a shot but it is on or just before the 49th Woodstock reunion weekend.
Also, I would get left behind due to my 60 MPH self imposed speed limit, not to mention August temps will be in the high 80's

It does sound like fun!

Peanut has a much better chance of being ready than my Argosy. I've already driven Peanut up and down my driveway a bunch of times. Peanut just has a bunch of detail work to be ready to go. I've yet to back mine out of the shop and currently it has no floor!

We could work in Jackson to Kentucky. I highly recommend Holly Bay campground inside Daniel Boone. It's on Laurel Lake near London, KY. Beautiful, big and level sites. Dump station at entrance, but electric and water at the sites.

It looks like my Woodstock event is the week before so barring any new health concerns (for me or the MH) I will try and make it.
I will have to beef up the cooling system to do a long run in the heat of mid August, but it needed to be done anyway.
Just curious what speed do you plan to travel? I prefer 60 to 62 MPH, but with a cooling upgrade and a light load, I can do more. The MPG will take a hit, probably requiring fuel stops every 250 miles.

Wayne...I should be done with the Gear Vendor install this winter, with the addition of the Flux-Capasiter we should be able to cruise at about 85 MPH. LMAO....we're pretty much all geared the same, so I am going to recommend that we take in the scenery and stay on state roads.....so to answer your question.....about 40-55 MPH. Regards, Bob

Sweet mother of God...60-62 mph for an American icon built in the day of 55 mph .....I may have to load up some Sammy Hagar "I can't drive 55" and pray for a 8% grade downhill all the way or a gentle push from someone (maybe from Mike and his vaunted Allison).

Cheers
Tony

Thanks,
It is nice to take it slow and look left & right now and again while driving the old boat to see something other than the lines of the road without worrying about what lane you are drifting into

Whoa! Sorry if my post and my British sense of humour offended you. No offence was intended or implied. My bad.

It just my old turbo diesel does 55mph really well and 60mph in a pinch.

Cheers

Classic Motor Home Caravan -2018

I would love to attend and show off my flash polished aluminum wraps too....
Oh, well, sorry guys, I guess I awoke from a nice dream...

Seriously Tony, Im wagging my finger at you... you need to be more... sensitive. Darn Canadians.

I actually thought my MH tracked pretty well and at an indicated 65 mph across the windswept desert plains heading west, it was fine.
I even hustled is along some back roads in NM and felt great, once I got used to the sheer size of it.
It was actually fun, because you sit so high, you can see across the apexs of the bends, allowing you to exploit the lessor grip on the front tires and adjust the understeer by throttle application..... Banks exhaust barking, all 4 barrels howling......

Zzzzzzzzzz....
